Growing up female in America. What a liability! You grew up with your ears full of cosmetic ads, love songs, advice columns, whoreoscopes, Hollywood gossip, and moral dilemmas on the level of TV soap operas. What litanies the advertisers of the good life chanted at you! What curious catechisms!
Happiness is an inner perception, inner joyfulness. We are happy when we express our kindness unconditionally. We are happy when we love someone unconditionally. By becoming the source of happiness for someone, we become happy. Happiness is the purpose of every creation.
